John Whitaker has been a benefits consultant at Sky since January 2013.
Before that, he was senior benefits consultant for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at global information company IHS, a role that included the management of benefits scheme design, supplier management and benefits harmonisation after acquisitions.
Before taking an in-house role at IHS in April 2012, Whitaker was US project manager at Asperity Employee Benefits, manager of reward at Equiniti, product manager at Lloyds TSB and business analyst at Knexus.
He says he is proud of Sky’s 2013 relaunch of a salary sacrifice scheme for iPads, with the addition of televisions.
“The amount of engagement we got from that, I’ve never seen across any other employee benefits scheme I’ve been involved in, either on the client side or the supplier side. Just to see that energy from Sky employees was quite unique.”
